Current opportunities

Do you have a few hours to spare each week? Would you like to be involved in supporting parents in your local area? Fife Gingerbread has been providing support in Fife for 30 years helping thousands of lone parent, vulnerable and disadvantaged families. Without the help and support of our volunteers, this would not be possible. As well as offering one-to-one support through our Support Workers, Fife Gingerbread also provide support to parents within various group settings which enhance confidence, skills and self-esteem whether it be from cooking groups, to walking groups and lots of things in between.

Would you like to make a difference to families and lone parents throughout Fife? FG are looking for compassionate, kind, nurturing people who can spare a couple of hours per week to support families by becoming a volunteer buddy. Buddies help to increase confidence and empower families by offering support and practical help. They give families a friendly non-judgmental person in their life who cares and understands that sometimes the juggle of family life can be tough. From offering a listening ear or going for a walk to helping them connect to their local community or filling out forms. The simplest of acts can have the biggest impact and through this our volunteers help families to build confidence and move forward in their lives. Volunteering is fundamental to Fife Gingerbread and is valued in all of our projects. Volunteers can choose to support more than family or volunteer in other areas of the organisation.
